sionigreensqSTUART NEALE and DENNIS MUCHALY are the maker/designer team behind SIONI RHYS HANDWEAVERS. Their contemporary hand woven Carthenni are beautifully made and hand finished portable blankets which they describe as 'rooted in the culture of Welsh textile tradition but always in the contemporary idiom'. The innovative colours and modern natural yarns that they incorporate show the influence of today but each one is hand woven at a standing loom. Their studio is situated on the edge of the Black Mountains and their work is inspired by the drama of the seasons and the rugged scenery of moorland and rock, so it is not surprising that their work looks so at home in Cornwall.
